Help Navigating Newcastle

Afternoon folks, I've bought a ticket to see a band in Newcastle in June next year. It's at The Boiler Shop. Has anybody visited there before? I need some help with parking as due to time constraints I'll be driving up instead of getting the train. Help!

It's ok I've done some digging and found a 24 hour car park that's 8 minutes away from the venue. 👍🏻

Over the redheugh bridge then turn right at one of the traffic light junctions. Im pretty sure its free street parking after 6pm

It is, ive often parked on the side streets if going to a concert on an evening if its a work night so not drinking.

The Boiler Shop is great if a little wonky (stage is in the far right corner of the building as you enter the building), I think it is because it is a listed building and no changes to the interior structure allowed (it was where George Stivvy built his first railway locomotives IIRC). Loads of free street parking round there (or was when I last visited, which, with one thing and another is over two years!)

Free street parking would be an added bonus, thanks gents. I'll get there early and if I can't find anything then at least I've got the Times Square car park as back up.

I had a quick look on Google Maps and along Forth Street the free parking starts at 6:30pm last time I was there I parked under the railway

Doors open at 7 I think. An hour from Great Ayton give or take a few minutes and potential traffic incidents. Probably leave home around 5:30. 😎😏🤣
Doors might open at 7 but the band probably won't be on until 9. If you're not having a drink that's some time you'll need to fill 😮
